Due to the recent natural disasters in the area, Lincoln County Food Bank is postponing our Festival of Flavors fundraiser. Refunds are being issued. Please remember to help us as we now feed so many more in our community. Thank you for your continued support.

Our Mission

Lincoln County Food Bank’s mission is to assist residents in need of food and personal care items. The food bank opened its doors in July 1986 by a concerned group of local citizens and relies on support from the community to continue in this mission.

In New Mexico, 1 out of 3 children go to bed hungry each night. Many of our residents face the dilemma of deciding whether to buy food instead of their much needed medicine, or pay utilities because, they cannot pay for all.

Unforeseen circumstances create emergency situations where supplemental food becomes vital. In just the first three months of 2020, we had already seen an increase of an additional 142 new clients. But, as we are experiencing the current Coronavirus crisis, our client numbers have increased even more dramatically.  For additional updates on the Coronavirus food bank procedures, please click on this link.

People who request food bank assistance are asked to verify their residence in Lincoln County or Mescalero on their initial visit and bring a photo ID on each subsequent visit. The proof of residency will need to be updated every six months. Qualifying residents may receive a box of food every 30 days. A card is maintained on file for each client who is served through our food bank. Each client is treated with courtesy and respect by our dedicated volunteers.
We maintain a bulletin board which displays materials covering such topics as reading literacy, locations serving free meals, free pet neutering, community services, and a list of other food banks. Another bulletin board is available for clients to post jobs they are seeking, or skills and services they are offering as a means of employment.
